Recharge at the Campus Technology Specialist Academy

Written by Dr. Bruce Ellis

If you help teachers integrate technology, then you won’t want to miss this awesome learning event. Recharge and discover best practices in coaching adults.

Like many educators, you, the campus technology specialist, probably find that more is expected of you each year. That’s one of the compelling reasons why teachers move out of the classroom to positions that support other teachers….only to find out that the grass may not be much greener on the other side. And if you hold a position on a campus or in a district where you coach teachers as they integrate technology, assist with basic troubleshooting, AND take on “other duties as assigned,” you may feel like you need to be recharged and refreshed before you burn out. That’s exactly what the Campus Technology Specialist Academy is designed to do: recharge and refresh you with new ideas, relevant solutions, and activities you can take back to your campuses.

Join us at the TCEA headquarters in Austin, Texas on November 16-17 for great learning and sharing that will inspire you and provide that needed support you’ve been looking for. You’ll have the opportunity to attend great concurrent sessions led by educators who are or have been in your shoes. Each hour, you’ll be able to connect with others like yourself who have a passion for helping teachers better integrate technology so that students can be engaged by outstanding lessons.

Registration is only $239 per person (which includes meals for both days and 12 hours of professional development credit). You can check out the specific content sessions in this year’s lineup by going here. There’s also an unconference time frame to ensure that your specific questions are addressed. The schedule for this academy includes:
